The entrance to the back garden was open. Bouncer at the front entrance was VERY rude demanding an ID just from me (the only female in the group) and became very rude, sarcastic and pretty aggressive when my friend said he didn't have an id. Reluctant to visit again. Went to the mockingbird round the corner instead which was much... More

This place is absolutely stunning! I loved the twist of history and modern vibes. We stayed in a huge, amazing room with an enormous bathroom. Ate great food, fabulous dinner and breakfast. Throughout our whole stay we were treated with exceptional service from all members of staff. This place has so much character, the staff were really friendly and helpful.... More

Stayed here for 1 night in March 2015, very small but lively pub/hotel. Rooms were small but had a lovely old feel to them and that's part of the atmosphere there! Only thing was it was close to a main road so a bit of traffic noise. Breakfast was lovely in the morning and even met Terry Wogan who was... More

I stayed here on 12th July 2016. There was a fire in the kitchen at 3am and we were all forced to stand out in the street for well over an hour. A lady came to see us to inform us that we would be re-located to another hotel. A man then came and told us all the fire had... More

I booked this hotel just on price, location and free car parking. Couldn't beat it anywhere. Location was amazing with just a 10 minute walk to the Bull Ring. On arrival we were greated by a very friendly gent who showed us around the maze of rooms and corridors - all olde-worldly, wibbly wobbly walls and floors. Room itself was... More

Thanks for your feedback it is appreciated. Sorry you found it noisy at night and thanks for being understanding. Our rooms round the back are quieter so do book one of them if you decide to come back. The spooky story did make us laugh, strange things do happen at night and it's not just to us it seems! Look...

We stayed for one night while in town for a gig and would happily recommend The Old Crown to anyone. Its close proximity to Birmingham's city centre and the Bullring Shipping Centre make it an ideal choice for savvy shoppers seeking somewhere for an overnight stay. Our room was comfortable and well-furnished and, although we didn't opt for an en-suite,... More

I chose the Old Crown because it was easy access from the airport, right near the Bullring and also the coach station. It looked unique with plenty of character, as well as having lots of good reviews. We were not disappointed: the staff were friendly and helpful, the en-suite room had everything we needed and was furnished in character with... More

We stayed for a night after a trip to the theatre, it is in a great location, the room was well furnished and the bathroom was very clean and modern. Breakfast was very good and included in the room price. Also had a good selection of real ales available.

The Old Crown is a hotel and pub built in the 1300's! We had an enjoyable stay there! We had a comfortable room, large bathroom and breakfast in the morning! The food was good, the staff nice, it's a cool place!
